Celebrate Sisterhood

rawpixel-com-236139.jpg

There’s such animosity that’s encouraged between women in society. You see it played in movies and experience it play out in real life. If they don’t know each other, they don’t like each other. They don’t even give each other a chance to see if they would. They judge each other from their hair to their shoes as they walk by. They pull their man in just a bit tighter when they see her walk by. They smile in her face and talk behind her back. I’m not sure where this treatment started or how it caught on, but we can do better and it starts with each of us.

Today I want to give a shout out to all of the women fostering a sense of community among women. I want to applaud the women who rise above cattiness and gossip. I’m giving a standing ovation to all of the women who empower and embrace not only women in their circle but uplift and encourage women they don’t know. You are the ones who make it possible to help restore a sense of sisterhood among women. The ones who will help mend bridges and show future generations to follow in our footsteps. The ones who will help build stronger communities.

Every woman needs that circle of women rallying around her. The group that will empower her and believe in her when she needs it most. Those women who will support and encourage her. The circle with women of all ages where the experienced ones share their wisdom. A place where women are safe to let down their guard and lean on each other. An example of what it looks like to work together for the good of each woman. A sisterhood. If you want that in your life, I’d like to invite you to join the online sisterhood. I’ve created it to empower women and show them what it’s like to be embraced and supported by women who don’t know each other in real life. It’s an incredible feeling to be surrounded by a such a group of women even in an online capacity because energy knows no limits.

  1. This post was amazing. I agree- why is there this unspoken animosity towards women who don’t know each other? I do my best to be the nice girl, who smiles at strangers and will talk to you if we’re in line at a store. It truly hasn’t changed with age either, for some reason I feel like women tend to get meaner and meaner. I liked how you mentioned that women need to be surrounded by other women/people who rally around them- not seek to bring them down. (I actually talked about that in my last blog)… Thanks for such an inspiring post, I cannot wait to read more.

    1. It’s the worst isn’t it?! I remember feeling like I was in the Twilight Zone because I never was that girl nor did I become that woman. I’ll never forget an episode I caught when Tyra Banks had her talk show and she addressed it. She called it out and started this movement. I loved that she did that! I’m so lucky to have my mom who has been such a great example of the woman I wanted to become. But I found it hard to be around other women because they weren’t like that. I created a closed online group to attract women like you! Hopping over to check out your post now. So nice to connect with you Courtney ❤

      1. That’s good your mother was able to set that bar for you. It is even greater that you are making it a point in your life to spread the awareness and stop the cycle. People need to empower one another.

  2. I am probably guilty of succumbing to some of the animosity mentioned. Question though do you usually try to reach out and be friendly even if this person has a track record of single mindedness/being unaware of their abrasiveness? Have a person I work with that I dread interacting with daily.

    1. Thank you for your honesty. I was that woman for several years. I received it for so long I played into it. It wasn’t who I was though and just decided to be myself. In the type of person who smiles at everyone and tries to make friendly conversation.

      I personally would try tho have a conversation. Especially if you think they don’t realize they’re like that. That makes for an uncomfortable work environment. A friendly direct conversation might clear the air. Let me know what you decide to do and how it goes 💖

  3. I’ve never understood why there is so much enimosity between women. It’s almost like we’ve been wired by society to judge and shame one another. But the good thing is that I have seen an increasing number of women’s circles online. Sisterhood, I believe, is more of our “natural” state. Fostering a sense of community and togetherness. Lovely post!

    1. Yeah I’m not sure how it all started but it’s a few generations strong at least. I agree, there are more and more circles and it’s wonderful! I believe sisterhood is the natural state as well. I’m glad you enjoyed this post. Feel free to join the sisterhood if you’d like 💖

  4. Reblogged this on Quintessential Faith and commented:
    I read this post and thought of how true it can be. Many women seem to have a need to be as odds with each other even before the know the person. A man walks into a room and a woman may feel a need to welcome him and a woman walks in and she just suddenly has an attitude or a need to help.

    If you are a woman reading this, don’t get too defensive too quickly. As yourself genuinely think f you were on the the outside looking in am one of those people with a stinky attitude or do I help other people and in particular women around me.
    Am I that colleague or class mater or just human that abhors the sight of new women or do I look for opportunity to help those in my environment.
    Granted some of you may have had experiences that has made you have a default snotty and snobbish attitude, but is there another way? I think there is. At least there has to be,. How about you have a default loving spirit and ask God for a discerning spirit, to know those to keep away from?

    What really do you stand to loose if you help the new lady who walks in? Oh but she may burn me or disappoint me, but what if she doesn’t, what if she becomes that friend that sticks closer than a brother?
    This is not a post or an invitation to ahut down your ability to reason and decide who you want in your curlcle, it’s a post asking every woman to check their attitudes and stop being stuck up. It’s alright to be nice and to help the woman beside you. It’s okay to smile at a lady who walks into the room, so she can feel at ease and ask for help.
    Let’s drop the culture of thinking we have to be at odds with each other or that we have to be messy with each other. Let love rule. Having said all these, I think this is a post with an opportunity to appreciate some of the friends and in in my life who have been more than friends. People who know the very depth of me, even the dirt and they still choose to call me friends and to pray and sing and play with me. This is not to say these are the only women in my life that have been of help to me, but they happen to be the ones that made it into this post. So for all the women who have somehow stood by me and been of help to me one way or another, thank you. I love and appreciate you. The post that inspired this post is below, feel free to check it out.

    1. I’m glad it inspired you to celebrate the women in your life. I know growing up I always felt uncomfortable around girls because it starts young. Now that I’m a woman, I always greet women with a smile usually find it softens their reaction to me. It doesn’t work every time but for the most part it catches them by surprise. I love to engage in conversation and let them have a pleasant experience with a woman they don’t know. Thank you for sharing my post. Sending you lots of love my sister!
